    Students say the updated dress policy will make pupils feel ‘insecure’, claiming those who applied to the Sixth Form weren’t made aware of the changes.

    La petizione afferma: ‘This dress code infringes on the freedom that we supposedly get at sixth form and as a result it forces students to wear clothing that may make them feel uncomfortable and possibly insecure.

    'Inoltre, for families that struggle financially this can be a great burden to them as they are now required to buy more expensive clothes for their children.
